Do you want to laser cut different materials and turn them into your own products? Then you are here!

Sculpfun laser cutting provides a fast, precise and scalable way to cut a wide variety of materials. Use a strong laser beam during the laser cutting process to produce clean cutting edges. Compared to other machining methods such as punching, cutting, milling, etc., laser cutting is non-contact and therefore also suitable for sensitive workpieces.

Even complex patterns can be achieved easily and precisely with the Sculpfun S30 Pro Max laser engraver. Lasers impress with their high processing speed and flexibility.

HTPOW offers laser engravers to private and corporate clients.

This blog can convince you of the many possibilities of laser cutting and see what we can do with wood, acrylic, paper, and more.

What Can You Laser Cut?

As long as the material thickness is not too thick, theSculpfun S10 laser engraver can handle a variety of materials with ease.

Examples of materials suitable for laser cutting are:

  • Acrylic and Plastic
  • Slideshow
  • Wood
  • Paper, cardboard and cardboard
  • Rubber stamp
  • Textiles (felt, cotton, silk, wool, kevlar, denim, wool, polyester, linen, lace, shell, leather)

Therefore, laser cutting is suitable for producing very individual items. We have extensive experience in one-off and low-volume as well as high-volume production for private and commercial clients.

What Can You Laser Cut

How Does Laser Cutting Work?

In laser cutting, material is cut by selective heating using an intense laser beam. The laser beam produces a temperature rise above the sublimation temperature of the material at the point of intersection. The evaporated material is directly expelled as fumes without transferring the temperature increase to surrounding materials. As a result, laser cutting produces very clean cut edges: wood cuts without any nasty debris, leather and textiles don't fray, and acrylic cuts have crystal-clear edges. However, with some materials, escaping gases can cause darkening of the cut edges, such as laser woodcuts.

Advantages Of Laser Cutting

Compared to machining of different materials, laser cutting has many advantages: The cutting results are always accurate and no separate rework is required. Thanks to the non-contact laser process, the raw material does not slip and there are no unsightly bruises. Due to the narrow cutting edges, the cuts can be placed very close together. No material is wasted and the available space and materials are used optimally.

Even for small batches or single pieces, HTPOW can provide you with a laser engraver at a reasonable price. We can also ship your engraved products anywhere in the world within a few days.
